I’m A Web Designer!

Actually, I’m just excited that I managed to install a plug-in and get a widget to work.

I really don’t even know what I just wrote right there.

I’ve seen other blogs with these cute little “bookshelves” or “libraries” or “I’m Smarter Than You Because I’m Reading…” thingies (that’s about as technical as I get) on their sidebars.

At least, I think it’s called a sidebar.

So…it only took me, wife of a real, actual, live and darn talented web designer, one hour to manage to post one on my blog.

I’m pretty proud of myself.

One day, I might even add pictures and fancy things up around here. But don’t hold your breath on that one.

I want to be able to say something like “Here’s What I’m Reading NOW…and Here’s What’s In My Personal Queue”…something to that effect.

But since I can’t figure out how, and since it took me an hour to simply put a picture of what I really AM currently reading on here, I’m gonna call it a night.

But not before I show you what I’ve got coming up next to read.

It’s this…

I know, right?

It’s way far off from what I’m reading right now. But I’m what you would call “eclectic” in my reading.

And who knows? I might hate it. Totally haven’t read any of the other vampire junk out there, no offense Twilight-y people. But I read a historical fiction novel about Mary Todd Lincoln and found it fascinating…and if you’ve never researched her, and you’re all into psychological stuff like me, she was a character.

Confession: I’m a book junkie and I frequent the Goodwill near my house for books. I have so many books in my “to read” section of my closet. Yes, you read that right. AND…I STILL frequent the library. It’s like I’m secretly afraid that one day the print books will all just vanish.

I probably need some sort of therapy for that issue.

And I’m so sorry, techies, but I will never own a Kindle. There’s something that feels good about holding an actual BOOK. I love the smell of libraries. And the sound of turning pages and being able to physically SEE how much I’ve read.

I’ll say it again…I’m a total nerd.

Anyway, after ole Abe there, I picked up A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar, Breaking Free by Beth Moore, and the 2nd in the Harry Potter series.

Then I’m going back to Little Women after I get through those.

It seems…safe.

    I read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. It was awesome :) Also, saw the movie. I’ve also finished 3 of the books from your closet library. I have one more. I guess I will need to come check out some more.

    I love to hold “real” books, as well. I can spend hours at the library. But it does take me a l-o-n-g time to finish a book…I can’t seem to stay awake for more than a couple of pages at a time.

    Love your blog!
